At the ballet Degas found a world that excited both his taste for classical beauty and his eye for modern realism. He haunted the wings and classrooms of the magnificent Palais Garnier, home of the Paris Opéra and its Ballet, where some of the city’s poorest young girls struggled to become the fairies, nymphs and queens of the stage.

Degas (1834-1917) began visiting the ballet of the Paris Opera in his 40. It is said that Degas's art is all climax from the off and so it seems from this show, superbly curated by Richard Kendall and Jill DeVonyar, beautifully designed by Ivor Heal

Degas (1834-1917) began visiting the ballet of the Paris Opera in his 40s. Thirty years later, when he had long since made the subject his own, an American collector asked: "Why, monsieur, do you always do ballet dancers?" . It is said that Degas's art is all climax from the off and so it seems from this show, superbly curated by Richard Kendall and Jill DeVonyar, beautifully designed by Ivor Heal. An early sketch of a child straining to hold a pose carries the same intensity as a late painting of dancers strenuously flexing their limbs and there is always Degas's peerless line, charged with perfect clarity.

Edgar Degas is best known for his luminous studies of dancers. He captured his young female subjects warming up, practicing at the bar, or mid-performance with a stunning immediacy and accuracy, on canvas, paper, and in bronze. Although Degas did not consider himself part of the Impressionist movement, he is often viewed in that context. This sumptuously illustrated book offers a new framework, establishing Degas as a thoroughly modern artist who was engaged with and influenced by the then-new mediums of photography and film. Using drawings, pastels, paintings, prints, sculpture, photographs taken by the artist and his contemporaries, and samples of film from the period, renowned Degas scholars Richard Kendall and Jill DeVonyar examine the artist’s innovative approach to the subject, from his documentary mode of the early 1870s to the sensuous and expressive manner of his late work.

Great size, beautiful book with many photos. A perfect coffee table book for the ballet lover or art enthusiast.
Mr.Savik
The catalog for the current exhibition at the Royal Academy in London, this book is based on the oft-quoted Degas comment that, for him, the dance was "a pretext for rendering movement". Apart from many large-scale reproductions of paintings and drawings, it is an interesting work in that it studies the relationship between the artist and the nascent art of photography. It is now well -known that Degas was a convert to amateur photography and many examples are reproduced in the book of the photos he took of dancers and women bathing. Also enlightening is the essay that dwells on Degas's interest in Edward Muybridge's photographic studies of movement, which, at the time, were revolutionary.

Now, I would make a slight qualification as to the quality of the reproductions, especially of paintings, which appear dark when compared to the originals.
